Slow-Cooker Five-Spice Pork with Snap Peas

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4

Chinese five-spice powder, garlic, ginger, and Asian chili sauce supercharge this sweet and spicy pork stew with flavor. The prep work for the dish is super quick, and the rest of the time is hands-off. Simply start it earlier in the day to enjoy a dinner that requires no work later. Serve with white or brown rice.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Shaoxing (Chinese rice wine) or dry sherry
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs. Asian chili sauce, such as Sriracha
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp. Chinese five-spice powder
  • 2 lb. boneless pork shoulder, trimmed of excess fat, and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 lb. sugar snap peas (fresh or frozen), trimmed

Preparation

  • In a 5- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine the Shaoxing, soy sauce, brown sugar, chili sauce, garlic, ginger, five-spice powder, and 1/2 cup water.

  • Add the sugar snap peas and cook until crisp-tender, about 10 minutes. Serve.

    I have made this several times now. Each time, I've been very pleased with the results. Rarely are there any left over. I have added a bit of starch to thicken up the sauce, but it is not necessary.

    This if a great slow cooker recipe. I would next time use a little more hot sriracha. Hit with everyone even my fussiest eater.
